MEDIA REVIEWS
'"Biographies' of political borders yield fresh insights on nationalism, argues Megoran in this morally compelling, multi-layered work. With over two decades of local language fieldwork, he weaves a thick account of the troubled boundary between two post-Soviet Central Asian states, showing how 'interethnic conflict' actually results from particular internal political decisions."
--Morgan Y. Liu, The Ohio State University
"The sharp edges of political geography have always been state borders. Megoran has written a terrific, grounded biography on one of these sharp edges, a border that has carved interconnected places apart and destroyed lives as it has remade states and power structures in the Ferghana Valley and Central Asia more broadly. It is compelling reading."
--Gerard Toal, Virginia Tech University
A valuable addition to Central Asian studies and the contextual understanding of nationalism in the region.
--Acta Via Serica
